I had been to Marseille on several occasions during 1994-95 when upset people were bombing American planes at Paris airports. Flying out of Marseilles or Brussels was far safer. Because of the drug trafficking that Marseilles was known for at the time there was a heavy police presence which makes bombings more difficult apparently. I did have lunch there at a portside restaurant one afternoon during the same time period that was totally delightful and absolutely delicious. It was so nice to hear how Marseilles has evolved from the bad old days of my experience to the wonderful city it has become. Interesting, classy (have to see the new museum on the waterfront), historic, safe, and fun!
Pamela Morton is a excellent guide and historian. We not only visited the sites of Marseille but we also learned of the historical significance of the city. Pamela always has wonderful visuals.
Pamela introduction to Marseille made me think differently about the city! Love the history of the city as well as the new art developments recently, I will definite add Marseille to future travel itineraries in the south of France!
